Busy doesn’t care what you need

Glacier National Park
Glacier National Park (GNP). St Mary Entrance.

Without pausing a busy life, resolutions, their power, and a plan to commit, are ignored.

Final 120 Days

The only constant is change

Yesterday, 20 minutes before Ubering to the airport, Delta tells us weather has made it impossible to get to Glacier National Park. Air, car, and hotel all had to be rescheduled. Was it possible?

The only constant is change.

We know this.

But.

Do we plan for it?

And.

Do we strengthen our personal systems and processes to allow for rapid, mostly pain-free, and creative solutions to unexpected challenges?

Son, you have the opportunity to learn, develop, and hone personal systems and processes you control – decades earlier than me.

About Mid Life Celebration

A 10-year plan seemed absurd at first

September 1, 2016…passing through on business.

 

Colorado logo
Fascinated with logos lately.

 

Denver airport
“Hey, look at us, we’re hilarious.”

 

funny hats
My first thought was they probably lost a bet.

 

funny tee shirts
Truth.

 

A 10-year plan seemed absurd at first.

We’re all familiar with this scenario:

What would you do if you had only six months to live?

After 30 years at Disney, my mind has been trained to .think .differently

What would you do if you had only 10 years to live?

A question like this changes everything and hands us (on a silver platter) a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform our weak and worried soul.

In just three days, i’m “down to” three years remaining.

About Mid Life Celebration

The paradox of midlife conviction

Steve Prefontaine
Steve Prefontaine would have turned 65 yesterday. He tragically died in a single car accident in 1975.

 

The paradox of (midlife) conviction.

Much of Mid Life Celebration’s original vision has come true, yet much remains.

Why?

Because the world is asking for my Disney expertise.

i am quietly and consistently working to give the world what it wants.

i believe that a vision works best when evolution is in the DNA; change is not only welcomed, it is necessary.

N-e-c-e-s-s-a-r-y.

Just finished reading today’s Seth Godin’s post and he’s promoting Persuadable, a new book hypothesizing that great leaders change their minds.
